Washington, D.C. (August 22, 2016) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading representative of small business owners, is endorsing Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-08) for re-election. Gosar has a strong record of supporting legislation that would help small businesses and should be returned to the U.S. House of Representatives.

“Congressman Gosar has been a strong voice for small business and deserves to be re-elected,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “Arizona small businesses are especially grateful for his efforts to stop the federal government from claiming regulatory authority over practically every place water flows in the country. It’s these kind of overreaching regulations that hold back small business growth.”

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, creating on average 7 out of every 10 new jobs. As a small business owner for more than 25 years, I know firsthand that the government doesn’t create jobs and that one of the best things Congress can do is get big government out of the way. By empowering entrepreneurs and reducing job-killing regulations that are hindering growth, we can unleash the American Dream and foster future economic prosperity,” said Congressman Gosar. “I am thrilled to earn the support of the National Federation of Independent Business. For more than 70 years, NFIB has provided a strong voice for job creators throughout the country and currently is the leading advocate for more than 325,000 small businesses.”

Gosar qualified for an endorsement from the NFIB by achieving a high rating on votes scored in the current Congress. The Congressman earned 100 percent on the 13 votes NFIB has monitored so far. The list of the votes is available here.

Gosar’s endorsement today comes from the NFIB SAFE Trust, the organization’s political action committee.  Small business owners vote in high percentages and they are influential in their communities.
